Charles Atkins - keyboards and vocals
The Blues Boys
Larry Laseur - harmonica
Harty Wiedemann - guitar
Tom Henning - guitar
Bernie Powers - bass on track 3
This is a mix of practice recordings - all of these are originals. Tracks 1-3 are from 1992; 4-8 are best of 2-19-93 session. Seem to be missing a few master tapes around this time, and at the moment I can't find my folder of session notes, so I'm just going with this as is.
Track 1 is Charles and Tom from previous year - on a tune Tom came up with. Followed by an early version of (Fire) In the Neighborhood. Bernie's track is from early 92 - his speaker blew, but it had one more song in it.
Ribbon On My Day - this take is a bit slower than the popular 3-11-93 session. There were probably 3 or 4 walk-thrus before this; then Charles is pleased as the boys get their parts and he gets to nail it @ 4 minutes in. The rest of these are nice too - wish I had the master recording of this night.
Attached picture is from a Nov 92 article in Guitar Player about Duane Allman. This came out around the time the boys were in Blue Moon Studios recording 'Animal Called the Blues' - it was a big boost to see Charles' connection to rock history.
